I have a mechanical system that requires a certain amount of electrical power. Now, when I calculated everything I did not include the internal resistance.
I calculated that the mechanical system will require exactly 100W of electrical power. Do I have to add more power to account for the losses due to the internal resistance of the power source?
I understand there are forms of resistance, of the circuit, of the mechanical system itself but what about the internal resistance? And it's affect on the power conversion?
If my system requires for example, 10A @ 10V, would I need to supply more power due to the internal resistance, a friend of mine pointed out that a lot of power is lost due to the internal resistance, and honestly I'm confused as to how.
